If the desire is English fluency, better pronunciation, increased vocabulary, or conversation skills, please consider my tutoring services.

I also tutor middle school-through-college students to write better sentences, paragraphs, essays, and short stories as well as to enjoy writing and reading. Because I am also a professional writer, I share my enthusiasm with my students.

I earned my certificate for Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) at UCSD, one of the best English language training programs available. My students are of all ages and all nationalities.

Thank you for your consideration.

ESL/ESOL

I completed my TEFL Certificate at UCSD, and am very adept at teaching all aspects of English communication for academic, professional, and personal achievement. As a published writer I specialize in writing and speaking English, and have had great success in teaching pronunciation and grammar. After evaluation, each student receives customized lessons to address deficiencies and strengthen ability and confidence. Students include Asian, Middle Eastern, and Eastern European of all ages.

Elementary Education

Reading,

Reading

When young readers understand what they are reading, the effort to read is no longer an effort. I can choose books that kids love, help bring their vocabulary up to the reading level, and explain the nuances, actions, plots, and purposes of story. There is so much more to read besides Harry Potter, and boys and girls are delighted when they find stories they can relate to.
Spelling,

Spelling

English is famous for its irregular spelling--syllables often don't sound like they are spelled--but there are lots of simple rules that, once learned, make spelling more predictable and more accurate. I teach those rules along with root words, and see vast improvements in young writers' spelling.
Vocabulary,

Vocabulary

I teach vocabulary that kids can relate to by teaching root words, descriptive words, action words, and word origins. That's a kid's best way to build a vocabulary that is not only useful but fun to use. The practice greatly enhances reading enjoyment as well as articulation when either speaking or writing.

ACT English

Tutoring reading and writing to middle- and high-schoolers over the last six years has given me excellent knowledge of ACT English and Reading requirements as well as those for SAT Reading and Writing. (It's also given me useful insights into how young people think.... and how they don't think!) Students do well on those exams when they know what to look for as they read and how to organize their thoughts when they write. I teach that basic information.

Appreciating the beauty, implication, and purpose of literary work takes time and thought, but is highly rewarding and worth the effort. I have read much and thought much about the mysteries hidden in literature, and can share with my students both young and old.

Teaching in a way we can't

Mr. C. has been such a great help in tutoring my 12-year-old son in writing. He takes the time to identify where my son is having problems and is able to direct the lessons to deal with those issues directly. Mr. C. is organized and thoughtful and tailors the lessons specific to my son which helps my son understand the application of writing. Mr. C. adjusts the lesson appropriately so time isn't wasted.

Vanessa, 2 lessons with Louis

Very fun and knowledgeable tutor

I was worried for my son’s language arts skills in seventh grade. Louis talked to him in such a fun way that my son really enjoyed the sessions, and the way Louis assessed him and helped him improve was very impressive.

Asma, 1 lesson with Louis

Knowledgeable and patient tutor.

Louis helped my son's English with an emphasis of writing. It is the first time for my son to take tutoring classes so he was little bit nervous. Louis carefully and professionally assessed my son's needs. We appreciate his patient as he took sometime to get known my son before starting classes to make sure he feels comfortable. Indeed my son really enjoyed his well-prepared lesson! I totally recommend him as a professional and kind tutor.
